Join us and be a Food Rescue hero!

Our volunteers are our personal heroes. And they make our work happen. With the 412 Food Rescue app, you can volunteer as much or as little as you’d like. You can claim a weekly rescue that allows you to volunteer every week at the same time. Or, you can claim one-time rescues that are more unpredictable.

Regardless, you can give back when it fits best into your schedule. And for whatever you do, we thank you.

We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say. 'It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.' Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.

Here are other ways to get involved:


  • Food rescue
  • Grocery Bagging at Millvale Food + Energy Hub
  • Outreach + Special Event Support: Throughout the year, we participate in and host a variety of events like community gatherings, dinners, fundraisers, and more. Volunteers can assist with hands-on event setup, breakdown, greeting guests, loading materials, and more. At this time, we have currently paused our in-person activities and events due to COVID-19. Please check back in the future for updates on these types of opportunities.
  • Administrative Support: We occasionally need assistance in our office with tasks such as stuffing swag bags or stamping envelopes.  Email to learn more.
